** CUBA. 11845, March 12 at 1540 Cuban pulse jamming against nothing,
despite Radio Martí having abandoned this frequency some years ago.
Something`s always wrong at the incompetent and wasteful DentroCuban
Jamming Command. Other broadcasters may be on to them: HFCC B-20 shows
absolutely nothing scheduled on 11845. But EiBi has another jammer
country, China`s CNR2 at 0100-0855 via x site. See also TURKEY [and
non] (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GUATEMALA. On March 12 I wrote to Radio Verdad: ``Dr Madrid, We
miss your SW signal on 4055. What are the prospects for getting it
back on the air from Guatemala? Regards, Glenn Hauser``

Quickly replied: ``Dear Glenn: Thank you for your concern. We are
planning to repair one power module next Tuesday, in order to come
back on air with 280 watts. I have acquired the mica insulators we
needed for the power transistors. I am sending the other two modules
to Canada to be repaired by Eng. Wayne Ralph Borthwick. The delay has
been caused by the extreme negligence of our Technician. May God be
with you and keep you with a good health. Dr. Édgar Amílcar Madrid,
Radio Truth, Chiquimula, Guatemala, C. A.`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 6125, March 12 at 0430, VOT Turkish music filling
out English hour to N America, but with heavy pulse-jamming QRM adding
up to S9+10/20. Of course it`s overrun from Cuba after Radio Martí
quit at 0400*. Clueless TRT frequency management has not grasped it
should avoid any Martí frequency even when itself be finished. Nor
9830 hitting RTTY after 2200 in the A seasons which I bet they are
about to resume. Something`s always awry at Ankara (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 5800, Friday March 12 at 0705, S9+20/10 of open carrier, got
to be WRMI again on air during scheduled break for some reason, as
last heard about same time on Monday Feb 22. Wonder if automation be
mis-programmed (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 12050, March 12 at 1538, S7-S9 of dead air in Spanish from
WEWN; for at least a minute, so not merely long boring pause in a mass
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7890, March 12 at 0706, JBA S5-S6, maybe trace of
modulation from presumed R. Vanuatu, 2 x 3945; also S4-S5 on 11835, 3
x 3945, the three of them now starting at 0700. I`ve been intending to
seek previous fundamental 7260 until 0659 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 2959.85V, March 12 at 0330, JBA carrier again suspected
of being second harmonic of an off-frequency 1480 station. As
previously reported on almost same frequency:

``UNIDENTIFIED. 2959.842, March 2 at 0207, JBA carrier, suspected
second
harmonic of a 1480-minus station. Later checked my previous log to
find independently measured within 3 Hz:

UNIDENTIFIED. 2959.839, Feb 22 at 0349, JBA carrier unseems birdie,
again suspecting a second harmonic from a Latin American MW 1479.9195
but nothing that far off in mwoffsets``

Meanwhile no one else has reported it; did anyone even try? So this
time I quickly go over to the KiwiSDR net looking for it at numerous
remotes around USA and S America --- nothing. So now I am concluding
it really be birdie from a local device. Never mind (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11342-USB, March 12 at 1542, 2-way, at first unID
language but maybe heavily accented English from a flight, reply in
real English mentioning phone patch and sending sel-call tones. But
nothing more heard for 4 minutes. Numerous 11342 logs in UDXF iog up
to 2018y as New York LDOC; tho maybe some other hub along whatever
route this apply to. What does LDOC mean? Last Day Of Classes, Laying
[sic] Down On Couch; or more likely, Long Distance Operational Control
